In a brief, yet hilarious post on Reddit, one user Greentechbuilder posted a photo of a beautiful woman seated next to her husband. The woman, his friend’s grandma, wears a crisp, ruffled blouse adorned with a cameo, while the man behind her sports a flannel button-down and gold jewellery.
The yin and yang wardrobe decisions aren't the problem, though.
It’s the fact that the man, her husband, is covered with a magazine cut out of Oscar-winning actor, Leonardo DiCaprio. “My friends Grandma's house. She put a magazine cut out of Leonardo DiCaprio over her late (not so nice) husband's face. The 80+ year old's version of photoshop.” While details about the “not so nice” part are still in question, it seems Grandma’s coping mechanism with losing a loved one is a hit with Reddit users.
Since it was posted yesterday the post has received more than 30,000 upvotes.
In junior high, I Scotch-taped a picture of singer Ginuwine’s head (blame "Pony") over an old crush's face, in my heart-filled notebook. But even I wasn’t so bold as too put my love on public display. You've got to give the woman cred for putting her celeb romance of choice out in the open — where it should be of course.
Naturally the photo has attracted a number of hilarious comments.
However the best part can be found deep into the thread, where other users recollect seeing similar low-fi Photoshop jobs from older relatives.
“My step grandma did something similar to a painting of her wedding portrait. She never liked the portrait. It was a really cheap and poorly done painting of her wedding photo that her ex-husband had made when he was in Thailand. When she got divorced, she had a friend paint over his face with Elvis,” said user dylanus93.
Is this is a photo trend we'll all adopt after a certain age one day?
